I used to think so too, until I heard the utter mess it made of some of Saga Frontier's sound effects. PEOpS SPU is definitely the better of the 2 for at least that game.

In terms of user interface design, yes. In terms of anything even remotely approaching accurate emulation, uh, no.

Aside from some garbled sound in Samurai Showdown 3, it's worked perfectly with every other NeoGeo game. How much more accurate do you want?

IMO, it's still the best and fastest of its kind.

Working and having accurate emulation are two entirely different things. For instance, neither Project 64 nor 1964 are anywhere near accurate, but they work. MAME is accurate. NeoRageX is for the kiddies who want fr33 g4m3z. <img src=smilies/upeyes.gif>

Or for those who want to rip sprites out of NeoGeo games. It had a great option for that (toggle layers, move forward a frame, etc).

If it gets the job done....

It's also slow and bloated.

And MAME isn't? You couldn't possibly believe that.

I thought we debunked that myth about three years ago.

You're probably thinking of the illegal kiddie warez MAME varients.

No, but see, we're still living in 1999, when a 350MHz Pentium II was bleeding edge. <img src=smilies/upeyes.gif>

Fact is, even three years ago you couldn't buy a computer that couldn't run Neo-Geo games (save for the few with raster effects which, by the way, NeoRageX doesn't emulate at all), so to be bitching about speed even today, he has to not have a god damned clue. That or he's really poor, in which case his family should be saving up to get a better computer rather than spending it on internet access so Junior can go spew his misinformed bullshit on emulation boards that don't really need or want it.

All I know is that MAME does a poorer job of running full speed than other more specialised emus. 7MB is also ridiculously large for a binary.

An emulator is an emulator and will be attached to illegal activities, no matter how much one tries to claim otherwise. I am willing to bet that more MAME users pirate ROMs than purchase them.

Othermoogle:
Your argument is really quite a sad indicator of how lazy the youth of today have become. You apparently believe that optimised code is a waste when you can just brute force your way through with a faster processor and more memory. I remember a time when programmers enjoyed pushing systems beyond what people believed that they could do, with impressive results.

Furthermore, your uninformed and low-class personal attacks were wholly uncalled for. I suggest that you straighten your negative attitude if you expect to get along with anyone who holds a different opinion than your own.
